    Hi

    How much do you think I should ask for my ducklings?

    they are about 2 1/2 months old and will be big things!

    It all depends on where you live. Maybe check craigslist to get an idea of how much to ask. In my area, I could ask $4 to $5 per duckling.

    I think it depends on the breed too. What kind are they?

    I can ask for 5-7 dollars per call ducklings but I really couldn't sell my rouen/runner mixes for more than $2 per duck. =]
    Age can sometimes bump the price up a little too because you've put more of your money into them. Good luck!

    I live in MD and I just purchased 2 magpies who were roughly that size for $5 ea. Which is the going rate for this area.

    I think I'll list them here for 7.00 each. I put them on Craigslist for 10.00 to deter the people who i don't want them going to [​IMG]

    they are Saxony drake over F/W crested runner and Black Swedish. Mutts, but they will hopefully be nice large and pretty ducks.
